Sounds like the router may need a firmware update as the DHCP service is failing to run correctly.

You can however just use a static ip address.
First of all find out the network address in use.
eg. 192.168.0.1 - 192.168.1.1 - 192.168.2.1
to find out, - start menu - run - cmd - ok - ipconfig

1. Log on to the client computer as Administrator or as Owner. 2. Click Start, and then click Control Panel. 3. Click Network and Internet Connections. 4. Click Network Connections. 5. Right-click Wireless Network Connection, and then click Properties. 6. Click the General tab, click Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) in the This connection uses the following items list, and then click Properties. 7. In the Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) Properties dialog box, click Obtain an IP address automatically (if it is not already selected), and then click OK.

Note You can also assign a unique static IP address in the range of 192.168.0.2 to 192.168.0.254. For example, you can assign the following static IP address, subnet mask, and default gateway:

IP Address 192.168.0.2
Subnet mask 255.255.255.0
Default gateway 192.168.0.1

I problem when setup wireless linksys G2.4 the section puhs password .I don't password. It do'nt finish. Please tell me do setup wirless linksys g2.4 thank you.


To connect to your wireless router, the router's wirelesssettings needs to be configured with the SSID, encryption etc. and also thewireless cards in all the laptops/computers needs to be configured with theserouter's wireless settings. Then the laptops/desktop computers can communicatewith your wireless router.
Connect a LAN cable from the Linksys to the LAN port on your computer.
Open a browser and enter the Linksys configuration URL
http://192.168.1.1
The default login = admin
The default PW = admin
You can protect your router by changing the default PW (write it down and putit in a safe place)
Go to the wireless configuration and set up the SSID and WPA or WPA2encryption.
Apply these settings to the wireless card in your laptop/computer.

To secure your wireless network from unauthorized access,please click on this link and follow my instructions :- http://www.fixya.com/support/r3559128-wireless_router_security b>

Want to get on internet with my lap top via wireless what card do i need for the inspirion 8100


first of all you need to check with your internet provider to see what modem you can use. a wirless 802.11g card (the farthest range) if your provider has a wirless modem i would get it from them. and a wirless modem/router. i use bellsouth wirless dsl and bought the equipment from them. if you have a wirless modem/ router already then you just need the card and configure it.

Internet connection keeps dropping


That may sound like a "roaming tendency" issue, with your laptop wireless card or settings, and/or general radio interference. try checking and tweaking the advanced settings of your wireless card, and maybe check for outside interference between your computer and router. Many cards have roam settings that dictate how often they roam between APs. I too live in an apartment complex, where other neighbors have their own WiFi router and there can be interference, and "intrusion issues" :? if your equipment is not properly set and secured.

Tiscali Siemens SE587 router


I have solved my problem, after researching various messageboards yesterday to try and discover why my Siemens Tiscali router didn't work. I'm going to send it back and go with another company!
It seems there has been a lot of debate on these messageboards about Tiscali and/or Siemens products and it now seems also that no one would recommend them. I hereby add my name to that list.

Lost internet


The usb stick is replacing the job of the card in the pc so it could be faulty, but first reinstall the latest driver for it and give it another try - what version of windowns/linux to do run? What make is the card - (look in Device Manager)? Then I can help further if needed.

Thanks

If the problem is the wrong key entered then you should just modify it in the Access Point settings. Access Point settings can be accessed as Below.

In Tools->Settings->Connections->Access points
delete it then create a new one, or modify it !

Kindly give a feed back for this.

Thanks and regards

HI,

You can try manuall setup of da router.

The Default gateway for Siemens Gigaset SE587 is 192.168.1.1. Open Internet Explorer and put the def gateway in the browser.

The default username and password for siemns router is admin.

Click on Setup Tab than Basic Setup on left hand side. Update the details as folloing-

Use – Tiscali data PPPoA Interface

PVC Selection – Tiscali data PPPoA

And click on save settings. To confirm if the customer is connected, check the status of Online light – which should be green
. Alternatively click on status (On top) to check internet status to confirm connection.

Setting Up Wireless connection – Click on da wireless tab on the top.

Ensure that the Auto channel is disabled and the wireless channel is 11, wireless n/w is Enabled and mode is Mixed.

To secure the wireless connection – Click on Wireless Security option on left hand side

If you want the Security mode as WPA than select the wireless security mode, as WPA and enter WPA Shared key which would be on the base of the router. Again click on save settings.

Try connecting to the wireless network again and I m sure it should work..... lemme know if it does.
